Several bad guys with the Blackwater Worldwide Gang overdosed on some bad steroids and ecstasy the other day in Iraq. One of them was listening to GD, and hit upon Sugaree. They got into a big fight about best-Sugaree. Some freakin' FBI agent-in-charge dude got ahold of that old best-Sugaree thread that's been floating around here...

REPOST OF ARTICLE ORIGINALLY POSTED WAY BACK WHEN on RMGD

(guy below forgot to mention Anchorage June 21, 1980 -- oh yeah, I am addicted to Sugaree -- Monte)

1.) Within 24 hours of beginning the 'Best Sugaree' thread, at least three people (including Seth Jackson) will nominate 5/28/77.
2.) I will point out that, while it is the longest (about 19 minutes), the 17 minute 10/16/77 version is better.
3.) Someone will say we're all wrong and nominate 5/5/77.
4.) Someone else will accuse us all of being antiBrent and nominate 10/17/83.
5.) A pro/con Brent thread will branch off.
6.) 5/28/77 will get two more votes.
7.) Suggestions from knowledgable people will be made for 3/18/77, 5/19/77, 6/8/77, 12/1/79, and 12/28/79.
8.) Someone who has never heard a 1977 version will nominate a version from 1994. Nevermind that Garcia thought for the night that the second verse began with "Ran into the devil..."
9.) Someone, only having heard on tape one show from 1977, will nominate 4/27/77.
10.) Someone will nominate a version from 1973. Nevermind that all pre 1975 versions are virtually indistinguishable from one another.
11.) The pro/con Brent thread becomes a major flame war.
12.) A libertarian will pea in a cup.
13.) Someone will ask if anyone has ever heard 5/28/77.
14.) The pro/con Brent thread is busted in L.A.
15.) Someone asks if Phish ever played Sugaree.
16.) Another flame war begins.
17.) 5/28/77 is suggested for DPXII
18.) Dick gets busted in L.A.
19.) Someone asks 'What's your favorite Row Jimmy?".

What are you gonna dooo, spy-fuckers? Torture me all you will -- I'll never admit and confess which "Sugaree" is best-Sugaree. I'm a true Sugaree-addict myself. Jerry and the Boys have done me in enough already.

Monte,

I have never laughed out loud about a GD forum post, but your list just about did it. That IS the funniest thing I have read in a while. Thanks, I needed that.

But I digress...

FBI leaches on Etree!

I gotta go with that Lake Placid show as meriting serious consideration. Then again, I prefer JGB sugarees...

Now we have Matrices for both Anchorage and Lake Placid. I bet the FBI didn't know That either.

Now that got me smiling. Nice post and I'll make a nomination of my own for the Sugaree of 12-30-89 because it has the best Phase-flange effect use buy any guitarist in the history of man, hands down. Cheers

OK, 5-28-77 is good, but:
9-28-76
5-22-77
...are both great. Can't stand the Brent versions though.

dead_head-Monte: ...can we please add the studio version from Jerry's first solo album to the list? C'mon - he plays every instrument except for the drums on the entire album. Ive been to Lake Placid, Anchorage, and the rings of Saturn, etc., but it all started with the studio version.... I forgot, did I mention that he plays all the instruments on that album except for the drums?

The law come to get you if you don't walk right,
